The Research Publications series

About the series

This series was launched to make research and information on the Museum’s collection as widely available as possible.

Originally called Occasional Papers, the series has been published since 1978. Between six and eight titles are published each year, and all are peer reviewed both within the Museum and by an independent external authority. A number are available in hard copy, and some online.
